I always hesitate when someone says, "So, tell me about yourself." I suppose that tells one of the foremost things about me -- I'm not an easy person to get to know. I suppose if I were a crustacean I would be a clam. Are clams crustaceans? Oh well, you know what I mean. No clams aren't crustaceans. They are molluscs. Which tells you a second prominent thing about me. I can't stand to be in the dark, so to speak, on a matter. If I don't know the answer, I will research until I find the answer. This attribute often leads me into trouble because some people tend to see me as having to always prove my point. (Well, maybe that is true. Maybe I don't know how to just let things go!) To me it is more about resolving discrepancies. Still, I don't like that this tendency is often a point of conflict because I truly, truly dislike being misunderstood. This is probably because one of my deepest desires is to be known. Just to be known. To be able to live bared and transparent and just know that I am known. And that, I have found, is simply complicated.
